Cosmic Pirates, 20:30
Saturday 18th June

Join Martin Goodman, writer and publisher to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Barbican Press, and the 30th anniversary of Martin’s debut novel On Bended Knees.

This summer sees the reissue of On Bended Knees this sadly timely novel that considers how the affects of war in Europe are passed down through succeeding generations. It was shortlisted for the Whitbread First Novel Award, and this anniversary issue comes complete with a new introduction. Meet Martin in the Library Teepee, where he will introduce On Bended Knees and read his story set in Lowestoft’s first summer of the pandemic, ‘Queenie and the Boy’.

Martin is also the publisher of Barbican Press – find their books in our First Light bookstore.
